Hello, Jesse. I’m Jacob Fentress.

I’m a front-end web developer in Nashville, Tennessee. I have a passion for well-crafted interfaces—design and code. My desire is to work on things that make a difference in people’s lives; things that help them learn, help them grow, help them improve their lives—work and play—in meaningful ways. Frankly, I care. I care about my code and about the value of the things I code. I want to work with folks who also care about these things, and I would love to work with you.

But maybe I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me tell you a bit about my background.

I’ve been accidentally building websites for a decade. Accidentally, because this was nowhere on my radar in school. After graduating from Belmont University in 2003 (summa cum laude) I started producing a talk-radio show. On my first day, they asked if I’d ever worked on websites because they had a page they needed me to keep updated. I started reading up on how to do this stuff and just couldn’t stop. Soon, my full-time job was running and building websites. I spent five years at a small non-profit, where I was the web guy, and worked another five years at a large company, where I supervised a team of nine who handled all of our web design and front-end development. Now, I’m out on my own as the founder of a small web studio.
